Costco has the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi available for pre-order at $589.99
If you’re planning on picking up the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi when release day comes around at the end of the month, you can actually save some money on the total if you decide to place a pre-order with Costco.

From the looks of it, the discount retailer is accepting pre-orders for the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi that’s listed on their web site. Choosing to go with them, you’ll shave off a mere $10 from the price you’d originally pay for it elsewhere. So instead of paying $599.99, you’re only going to cough up $589.99 with Costco to get your hands on this venerable Honeycomb powered tablet. Furthermore, they’re also including free shipping and a gel skin case with your order.

However, the minuscule cost in savings means that you’ll need to wait a few days after its official launch date of March 27th because it’ll start shipping out on April 1st.

silly question here has someone tried using their phone wifi to power the xoom with a connection? thanks

You mean use your phone as a hotspot for the Xoom. Yes, that's possible if your phone does that.
